Are you going to be aged between 14 and 18 years old on 1 September? Do you live in the istrict of Mansfield?
If your answers are yes then you can stand to be Youth Mayor.
Each April secondary schools are invited to take part in the Youth Mayor programme. Each school nominates one candidate, who will then complete a candidate pack and attend training sessions. You will then produce a manifesto, which outlines what you would do once in post, as well as a marketing plan.
If you stand, you will get support for your campaign and throughout your year in office if you are elected.
If you attend secondary school or college in the district at the time of the election in October, then you can vote for the candidate of your choice at your school or college. Manifestos will be published on this page and will be available from your school/college, so you can find out what each candidate is standing for.
The Youth Voice newsletter contains updates on what the Youth Mayor has been up to.
